You have to admit the frittata looks like an Italian version of our favourite telur dadar from most Nasi Padang stalls. This omelette is a little bit of both ⁠— with a little added boost to your tastebuds and satiety from instant noodles.


  • 2 x 74 g packets oriental flavoured 2-minute noodles, broken, flavour sachets reserved
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  • 7 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • Mixed salad leaves, to serve

Preheat an oven-grill to high.


Place noodles in a large heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water; stand for 2 mins or until tender. Stir with a fork to separate strands. Drain.


Heat oil in a large ovenproof non-stick frying pan over moderate heat. Cook and stir capsicum and green onion for 2 mins or until tender.


Add noodles, cook and stir for 2 mins or until combined and heated.


Whisk eggs, soy sauce and reserved flavour sachets in a jug. Pour egg mixture over noodle mixture, stir to distribute. Cook for 5 mins or until beginning to set.


Place under grill; cook for 5 mins or until set at centre. Serve with salad leaves.
